It's no secret that I'll soon be the proud owner of a whippet puppy, but if I had a dollar for every time someone has said: "Why don't you get a real dog?" it would have paid for the puppy!
Let me introduce you to Wendy the Schwarzenegger of all dogs. It just so happens that she is a Whippet, a 27-kilogram-rippling-mass-of-muscle whippet (forget the six-pack stomach, Wendy has a 24-pack)!
Surprisingly, Wendy is steroid-free. The reason for her appearance is a rare gene mutation which has made her 'myostatin deficient' and essentially 'double-muscled'. Being super-buffed is not without its downside however as unfortunately, the mutation has condemned Wendy to a short life.
